Placebo effect can be as high as 72%. A deity that wants… demands worship would do well to have their adherents be a minimum of 73% better in all areas of life! As this god is all powerful 73% is an insult! Said adherents should be twice as good off as everyone else.
@Jear77 There are exceptions to every rule. Not literally. Maybe literally.
Up to God.
Yes, prayer can be a placebo effect. But there is a barrier, as Jesus said, “Do not babble on and on as the gentiles do”. Can can be sympathetic for that for awhile, but if you never come across that and go, “oh wait”, then you have not been even trying to follow what jesus taught.
These days are particularly bad, because there is SO much evil in the church. Satan really has driven people very far away from the teachings of Jesus.
But, really, the worst of it, you just see now, amongst Trumpists.
Did you know Trump’s dad’s middle name is “Christ”? And so is his mother’s? Fred Trump’s Mothers?
Did you know America has parts which is the beast and parts which is not?
And why and how?
Do you know who the levithan is? Who the behemoth is? Can you grasp the fullness of the earth and heavens as God can?
